MTV aired Gree City on May 1, 1984, Gree City was pretty sucessful as it was one of the only non-music related series on the channel, though it did have segments where Gree Guy would talk about his opinions on music, Gree City was one of the most popular shows in the older teens and young adults demographic.
Mattel made merchandise of the series.
In 1986, MTV (along with Nickelodeon and VH1) were bought by Viacom and Gree City was brought along with it.
In 1994, it was announced that Gree City would end after it's twelfth season in 1995 in order to ''keep the series from growing stail and repetitive'' and the series ended production in mid 1995, the series was replaced by reruns of Beavis and Butt-Head after it's cancellation.
Gree City went on to revolutionize an entire generation of cartoons, many of the people that worked on Gree City later had their own shows, Robert Stainton, the executive producer of the series, went on to create Greeny Phatom for Fox Kids, Gabriel Garcia, a writer on the series, also went on to create Geo's World for ABC, and many of the animators on the series went on to work on Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Gunbuster.
Greg Garfield said in an interview at San Diego Comic Con 2018 that "I'm okay with making a 13th season of Gree City, i have ideas for two more seasons of the show", in 2019, Greg Garfield made a short for MTV titled "Gree City: Reloaded", which was animated by Studio Yotta to pitch a 13th season, MTV liked the short but was unsure if Gree City would fit comfortably in MTV's modern lineup, Gree City's 13th season is still unsure but MTV said in a Gree City interview that "We will make a decision to greenlight a 13th season or not after the COVID-19 pandemic is over".
